Part of what makes the OTT-TOR rivalry a bit of a zoo is the coverage and attention it receives, particularly in Ottawa, and then coverage in Toronto about the coverage in Ottawa.

You have things like:
-an Ottawa sports reporter making comments about Domi hitting his wife, and justly getting fired for it
-an Ottawa city councillor attempting to "ban" Leafs jerseys in the Corel Centre (trying to be "cool" for the voters, gawd!)
-the inevitable bets between mayors, provincial premiers (from Ottawa, works in Toronto)
